Swedish shipping company Wallenius Marine introduces their new addition Oceanbird. They claim it will be the world largest wind-powered vessel.
It would be capable of ferrying 7,000 cars across the Atlantic.
According to this company, this gigantic sailboat is going to be able to complete an Atlantic crossing in around 12 days with a respectable average speed of 10 knots.
Per Tunell, chief operating officer at Wallenius Marine says, “Our vision is to lead the way towards truly sustainable shipping, and of course we want others to join us. It is not a competition, but rather a direction we all need to take. By being transparent in the process, we want to inspire others to test the limit to what is possible.”
